I remember when I first bought my Orca. I was as excited as a schoolgirl! I couldn’t wait to get into that ship, undock and fly that big s.o.b, look at the mechanisms that make fire and smoke at top of it, see how fast it could warp, align… I named it Willy. I still have it in hangar.
Then I got me a Prophecy. Lazers, target painters, missiles OH my! It looked to me like a mean bug swooping on its preys and leaving them wrecked and desolate. I named it Ladybug. Probably one of my favorite ships in the entire game. She saw me through many a skirmish, proudly returning to dock with cargoes full of modules and scrap metal that I couldn’t wait to reprocess.
Then Ladybug suddenly died a horrific death in 0.3 space, brightly blowing up far and wide in an explosion that temporarily blinded my tearful eyes. ( Don’t look, I was under another account ). I remember sending a message to the ganker, asking him what I could have done differently. He ( she? ) said I could have warped to the gate at 150km away so I would have had time to tuck tail and run before he could swoop down on me like a killer eagle.
Poor Ladybug, she died because of my innexperience and carelessness, lord keep her soul.
Do you name your ships? I want to hear about your favorite ships, the ones you love, the ones you lost and the ones you’re jealously keeping in hangar for that special event.
Have a great day!
I love you all.
